Good evening! How was everybody's day? I was in total detox mode after the last two days filled with cookies and fried chicken! I woke up knowing that I wanted needed to eat completely healthfully to get back on track. I even managed to resist the temptation of pizza when my hubb went out to get his lunch. :)
The day was started off right with my favorite muffins and a cup of hot tea.
Breakfast: toasted ezekiel cinnamon raisin muffin with 1 tbsp natural peanut butter and apple slices.
Morning Snack: oikos - blueberry flavor, leftover from the snack I never ate on Monday.
Lunch: a big ol' salad.
This delight contained:
red bell pepper
hearts of palm
Afternoon Snack: a perfect tangelo and a Clif Nectar Cacao, dark chocolate raspberry flavor. I enjoyed the bar before my evening run and the tangelo after.
Exercise: a 3-1/2 mile run with my dear friend Kelly. This was a much more enjoyable run than last night's because (1) I had company to chit chat with and (2) we went at 5pm and still had daylight!!! Yay for longer days!!! :) Thank you all for your supportive comments on last night's post, you have no idea how much it helps to know that I have a whole community of people cheering me on! I really think that I could learn to love running in the right conditions. A little daylight, a slightly warmer temperature and good company make all the difference!!! :)
However, I need a little injury help/advice. I'm starting to feel my tendonitis flare up again. I'm embarrassed to show you what my feet look like in the winter time, but I wanted to show all you runners out there where it hurts and see if you have any advice for me.
Have any of you had pain there before? It hurts the most when I've been sitting for awhile, and get up to walk. Almost like its seized up and can't stretch back out. It started bothering me on Monday, I'm sure taking last week off then going for a long run Saturday and an intense yoga class on Sunday flared it up. I took Monday off running, but went again last night. My foot hurt all day, but I really wanted to get my run in tonight. I know, naughty. I am committed to taking tomorrow and Friday off though, in preparation for my long run on Saturday. So my question is, do I ice it or heat it? I'm going to do my own research tonight on the 'net, but I was hoping some of you might have some personal, tried and true advice for me.
Back to food...
Tonight the hubb and I were called for emergency babysitting duty for friends. The change of plans has thrown our evening and my super healthy tofu and swiss chard dinner off track, as I only had time for a quick carry-out decision. I chose Chipotle because it had been awhile, and I felt that I could make a relatively healthy and quick choice.
Dinner: Chipotle burrito bowl with rice, black beans, grilled chicken, tomato salsa, lettuce and guacamole. I also had a couple of chips. :)
We're still with the kiddos...the 2-year old is fast asleep and my hubb is giving the baby a bottle after he woke up fussing. Too cute. Looks like it will be an all-nighter for us, although I'll probably leave at some point to go back to our house and take care of our pups. In the meantime, I'm watching Lost and knitting a baby sweater for a friend. :)
